To love peace costs nothing. To make peace is costly.

November 20, 2018

We have one week left to raise $3500 USD to reach our goal for #GivingTuesday! All funds raised go toward scholarships to help more peacemakers attend the 2019 Global Baptist Peace Conference in Cali, Colombia. Will you donate today?

Past Global Baptist Peace Conferences attendees have had life-changing experiences at the gathering. Your donation today will go toward creating the same experience for someone wishing to attend the 2019 conference.

“I was a happy participant of 2009 Global Baptist Peace Conference in Rome, Italy thanks to a few generous donors… I had always wondered why Jesus calls the peace-makers “blessed” and not the peace lovers. I eventually realized it is because to love peace costs nothing. To make peace is costly. It costs intellect, money, time, energy and it costs life… I hope you will donate toward this Global Baptist Peace Conference to help somebody to attend for the first time.” – Rev. Dr. Joao S. Matwawana

In order to make sure that more peacemakers have the means to attend, we invite you to give toward this work of creating peace and pursuing justice in the world.

Will you donate today to help someone attend this important gathering?
